In Hawaiian culture, poke holds deep significance as a traditional dish that reflects the islands' abundant seafood. With its explosion of taste and adaptability, poke has rapidly gained popularity worldwide. Its journey from a local Hawaiian delicacy to a global sensation is a testament to the appeal of this simple yet tasty culinary creation.

Poke, the Hawaiian word meaning "to slice" or "cut crosswise into pieces,"is traditionally used with raw high-quality ahi marinated with soy sauce, seaweed, sesame oil, and various seasonings.
